Let’s Keep Digging to See What else the Media Is Ignoring

Like the U.S. homicide rate, Canada’s rate just keeps falling and falling.

The homicide rate in Canada has fallen to its lowest annual level in 44 years, thanks to significant drops in British Columbia, Alberta and Manitoba, Statistics Canada revealed Tuesday morning as it gave detailed numbers for 2010.

The national homicide rate is now 1.62 for every 100,000 population. It has been declining since it reached a peak in the mid-1970s.
